Apple pre-announces new iPhone firmware. Apple releases new fimware beta. New firmware beta leaks to pirates (JAR!). It's a familiar story (except for the Apple pre-announcing twist -- that almost never happens), and this time brings us details on the upcoming "Parental Controls" feature. (Apple Insider via iPhoneDevTeam)

A General Preference pane, iPhone's Parental Controls can be enabled or disabled, with individual options for allowing/disallowing "explicit" iPod content, and/or use of Safari, YouTube, iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, and App Store.

Of course, since iPhoneDevTeam probably has several l33t hax0r members around the age of 10, figure the next-gen jailbreak/unlock will also remove any such parental oversight (FTW!).
